@AlexanderofAlzarius Yes but this was The Doctor and Jack's first meeting, therefore the Doctor didn't know him before this to be able to use that information if Jack was the one who gave it to him. Unless Jack was in disguise as Santa in order to avoid any timeline problems.
3 days, 1 hour ago on Christmas Special: Santa is Real, Not Evil
@TARDlSkey The Daleks haven't been a major villain since Series 4. Series 5 they were only in a one-episode story and with every other villain in the finale. In Series 6, they had no appearances save for a cameo in the finale. In Series 7, they again only had a one-episode story and were brought back in a big way for the 50th anniversary and Christmas special(which makes sense, since they're the biggest villain in the show). And then yet again in Series 8, they only had a one-episode story. So since Moffat took over, they've only been in 8 episodes. That's nothing. They're not overused at all. Maybe in the Davies era they were, but in Moffat's era, they've barely been touched.

@YaelMoise We've had the devil and gods and all sorts of supernatural entities. Santa is not that much of a push. Besides he's featured in a few official prose stories and one audio. He's all good.

Can we just acknowledge how genius it was to get someone named NICK FROST to play Santa. It's perfect.
@Mati C She's playing the shock factor on The Doctor. She's not actually his girlfriend. She's just being her usual nutter self.

@Afterlife of the Pudding Brains! I certainly think becoming a woman gave him an edge over the Doctor. Not only is it something the Doctor might have overlooked but from the look on his face during the reveal, it certainly added shock factor.

@I've had an Accident @Cambrell Could be prevention against Cyber-conversion. We know the Cybermen have reached that capacity since Nightmare in Silver.
I saw it coming and I am actually happy with the reveal. However, Death in Heaven is still to come and I have a feeling that Missy could be messing with the Doctor's head by saying she's the Master, when she could be another Time Lady just using the Master's name to add shock value. I'm also slightly annoyed that there was no follow up. The Master redeemed himself at the end of The End of Time Part 2, and I really want to know A) How he survived. and B) Why she's gone back on that redemption.

Missy reminds me of Miss Hartigan from The Next Doctor. I know that she won't be Miss Hartigan but she reminds me of her a good bit. I'm betting Missy will be some corrupted Clara splinter, or even an amalgamation of all the dead Claras. That would seriously make sense. So angry and full of revenge because the Doctor didn't save her so many times, she just saved him.
3 weeks, 5 days ago on Dark Water TV Trailer
Starting to think Missy might be some corrupted amalgamation of all the dead Claras. She refers to the Doctor as hers. She knows Clara somehow. Death is not the end? Maybe the splintered Claras are coming back to haunt the Doctor for not saving them. I'm very scared of this finale. And very excited.
3 weeks, 6 days ago on Next Time: Dark Water
If that is the future of humanity, then I'm scared because it tells us that in 35 years, nothing will have changed. Humanity's instinct will always be to destroy. The moon is capable of being destroyed by nuclear weaponry. If we really needed to kill it afterward, we could attack it no problem. But no, humanity decided to kill it before it even had the chance. It's upsetting, to say the least. You'd think in another 35 years that our generation would make a different decision.
1 month, 1 week ago on Poll: Lights On or Lights Off?
@Antee991166 I wouldn't mind some deviation by having the Doctor played by an Irish actor (not too far away from the British plus I'm biased because I'm Irish, and you could play up the "Gallifrey is in Ireland" gag a lot).
1 month, 2 weeks ago on Downey Jr on Who Role: “Anything’s possible”
As much as I love the Doctor and more specifically THIS Doctor, he abandoned her on the moon in 2049 with nuclear bombs and one of her students with the intent of giving her the ultimatum of either not blowing up the creature(and having to trust he'll come back even though HE JUST ABANDONED HER) or killing herself by blowing herself up. He didn't come back until the very last second. Clara was terrified, and Courtney was also there, a completely innocent schoolgirl left to die. I'm gonna have to vote Clara on this one this one time. The Doctor needs to learn a lesson this time. Still, LOVED the episode and the Doctor's negative morals. I like that he's darker, I like that there's danger and lifes being left in the balance, I love it. But of course, loving a character does not make that character a good person, it makes them a good character. "Am I a good man?" No. Doctor. No, not right now.
1 month, 2 weeks ago on Kill the Moon: Clara or the Doctor?
The ratings don't matter, and even if they did, they don't affect Doctor Who that much. It's not a case of less people watching, it's a matter of more people recording to watch later, and BBC knows this. Anyone worrying about Doctor Who being cancelled is NEEDLESSLY worrying. There's no basis for the assumption that the show will be cancelled, it's doing better than ever, AI ratings or not.

2 months ago on Celebrating “The Highlander” and “The Bad Wolf”
I honestly don't think Clara is doing anything bigger than any other companion. Just because her timeline meets the Doctor's at a few points doesn't make her more or less narratively influential to the Doctor than any other companion, it just means that she has just met the Doctor a bit more, but in SHORTER bursts. Other companions stayed on the TARDIS long term, whereas Clara is coming and going.
2 months ago on Open Discussion: Is There More to Clara Than We Think?
@Oodkind It won't. Back in the days of the 6th Doctor, going dark was a bad move, but now it's both more socially acceptable and because of recent events and stuff, it's more relevant to the character.

@stargazer0118 @YaelMoise Or worse, the Valeyard. If you listen to the audio "He Jests at Scars..." it features a what-if of what happens if the Valeyard wins and it features him going back and correcting past Doctors' mistakes, including destroying the Daleks at their beginning like The 4th Doctor was tasked to do.
2 months ago on DWM: Things will never be the same again after Kill the Moon
@stargazer0118 @ilyootha @yoshfiction @YaelMoise Clara knows the Doctor has that specific space suit, she's seen ELEVEN wearing it during "Hide" so it's likely that when he picked up Orson, he had Orson put it on when he sent him outside to fetch Clara from her date with Danny. Simple explanation.
@stargazer0118 @Ottoman14 But he still is. Protector of the weak, defender of peace. But at ANY costs. He is the Doctor who seems to be going the direction of "I'd kill 100 to save 1 million". He's correcting his mistakes. He's let too many enemies get off without consequences. Now he seems like he's not going to let it happen anymore. Save the world at any cost.

@WhoFandom @TerraceArchimedes @Scootersfood Yes, but it was a CHOICE that the War Doctor was making. He was CHOOSING to die. There was likely enough time to make it back to the TARDIS, but he was choosing not to. He was choosing to go down with the planet.
@NineTenElevenTwelve In one of the pictures released for this weekend's episode, there's a spoiler-y one concerning that.

@ Notsosmartguy She could still be in it even if Clara gets killed off. There's a chance that the Heaven arc means she could be brought back to life at the end of the finale, or 12 could encounter another Clara echo.
2 months, 2 weeks ago on Danny’s Future Beyond Series 8
@MisterMeanour The connection is the fact that the US had to lose two of their own to beheadings. Airing an episode of a show a few days later showing someone being beheaded would be insensitive and possibly trigger some people and upset some people. It has nothing to do with the connection of sci-fi and reality, it has to do with the fact that two people were beheaded, and showing a beheading in a show shortly after would be considered insensitive. Just like they choose not to air certain episodes involving quakes, tornados, or tsunamis when there are recent disasters involving similar events.

This was such a hard decision for me. I watched 9 and 10 but never really loved 10, and there wasn't enough of 9. So Eleventh Hour and 11's coming made me really excited because it was the episode that made me realise how much I loved this show. But Deep Breath is slightly better in my opinion. So I've voted for Deep Breath. 12 is very much already starting to shove 11 aside for my favourite Doctor.
2 months, 3 weeks ago on Face-Off: The Eleventh Hour vs Deep Breath
@TheIdleIdol I imagine it'll probably be included on the Deep Breath dvd/bluray release, as well as the full Series 8 release.
2 months, 3 weeks ago on Watch the Deep Breath Cinema “Prequel”
We all know what 10 said. He got worse, he talked people in taking their own lives. I imagine 12 does this without remorse now. He's sick of giving second chances. Like with the Wooden Cyberman. He DIDN'T lie. He said he sent a signal with the Sonic Screwdriver. He DID send the signal, and then tricked the Cyberman into thinking it worked by verifying the signal itself. The screwdriver doesn't work on wood, of course, and the truth field prevents lying, so the Doctor used the screwdriver and sent the correct signal but manipulated the Cyberman into verifying it, itself, so it'd kill itself. I reckon the Doctor is going to be like this.

@DasManiac Doctor Who was a show made for kids in the 1960s. Its biggest demographic remains, to this day, kids. Yes, yes, I know there are lots and lots of adults and such watching it too, but the point is, it's a show made for kids. To completely ignore the larger part of its demographic would be ratings suicide.

@Antee991166 @TheOncomingStorm I think people are reading into that in the wrong context. When Moffat said it wasn't just Cybermen, it was more about that the story wasn't purely Cybermen, not necessarily indicating that there's a secondary monster. I personally read into that as that the Cybermen are certainly a big part of the finale, but it's more about the entire story, not just the Cybermen.
3 months, 1 week ago on Talalay Talks “Action-Packed, Emotional” Series 8 Finale
@bl0ndie98 Yeah, but he was also burning up and dying through use of his own life force. That was explicitly stated. He could easily have died right after returning to Gallifrey. And although I hope he didn't, I honestly would like him to stay gone for a few years. You need a good reason to bring him back and at the end of The End of Time part 2, The Master had redeemed himself and become technically good. So a good Master isn't all that fun to write. Leave it a few years, let the NEXT showrunner bring him back. The Master's death brought the beginning of Moffat's era. So I'd like to see The Master come back at the end of Moffat's tenure when he passes the show to a new showrunner.

To be honest, I'd love to watch an entire series in the cinema. Do a special deal, like 50 euro/pound/dollars for a special ticket to see all 12/13 episodes in cinema over the 12/13 weeks as opposed to just 12 euro per showing.
3 months, 3 weeks ago on Does Deep Breath Really Deserve a Theatrical Release?
@TARDlSkey Well he obviously wants to atone for his mistakes. He's saying that he's not looking for human approval, so I think fixing his mistakes is his way of gaining his OWN approval back.

@TomTurner66 Tons of people are against Capaldi. It's just that as a reverse of the norm, us positive people are more vocal about liking him than before when it was more negative people being vocal about Matt even though way more people liked him than disliked him. It's a matter of the positive/negative being vocal and while the most vocal with the 12th Doctor think that he is going to be amazing, there are a lot who don't like him for some odd reason. Which is stupid, really, because we've yet to see him in action.
